Serie A side AS Roma have joined the race for Chelsea’s Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah according to the Mirror newspaper.
Jose Mourinho is reported to have given the green light for Salah to leave this January.
The report goes onto say that Besiktas are in pole position to secure the 22-year-olds signature however, Roma believe they can scupper that deal and take Salah to Serie A.
Rome have offered to take Salah on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Beşiktaş have also bee closely linked with the Egyptian international following a statement released by club president Fikret Orman confirming talks with Chelsea over a mystery player.
“I was in England and held talks with Chelsea but it would be wrong to disclose who the negotiations were regarding,” Orman told Best FM.
“The talks are ongoing, if I was to tell you who the transfer was regarding it could make the move more difficult.”
Salah has played in just three Premier League games in all competitions for the Blues this season and has failed to make a Premier League start.
